Superb Chalkware Parian Style Figure
This charming Victorian chalk figure was fashioned
with the intricate detail and modeling that you would expect in
a fine piece of parian or Staffordshire. We know that Italian
sculptors excelled in chalkware carvings of religious subjects.
Since the piece is not marked in any way we cannot be certain
of its origin. However, the figure does wear a cross and as the
workmanship is exceptional we would guess that it was made in
Italy or by an Italian immigrant in the latter part of the 19th
century. The figure is approximately 6.5" tall and 4"
wide. Soiling, minor chips, repair to the tree. (Stock number
